  1. 1. On caries prevalence and school-based fluoride programmesin Swedish adolescents

    Författare :Ulla Moberg Sköld; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Adolescents; approximal caries; caries epidemiology; caries incidence; caries prevalence; caries progression; fluoride mouth rinse; fluoride varnish; population-based caries prevention;

    Sammanfattning : Dental caries on approximal tooth surfaces in adolescents is still a problem in Sweden, as well as in many other industrialised countries. The aims of the present thesis were therefore: 1) to study whether caries prevalence is underestimated, 2) to evaluate the effect of cessation of fluoride mouth rinse (FMR) programmes in schoolchildren with low caries prevalence, and 3) to reconsider the school as an arena for population-based fluoride (F) varnish and FMR programmes in order to minimise caries development in 13-16-year-olds.

  2. 2. Fluoride varnish programmes for adolescents at school – caries, conceptions and costs

    Författare :Eva-Karin Bergström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :adolescents; approximal caries; caries incidence; caries increment; caries prevalence; cost-analysis; dental nurse; fluoride varnish; oral health promotion; phenomenography; population-based; school programme;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the effects on caries, conceptions and costs of school-based fluoride varnish programmes for adolescents in Sweden. Paper I was a 3.5-year randomised controlled study of 1,143 adolescents, in a low caries prevalence area. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Försök till tidig diagnos av kariessjukdomen

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the present thesis was to find a test for prediction of caries activity which would be useful in routine clinical work.Correlations between oral health, general health, food habits and socioeconomic conditions were investigated in 4- and 8-year-old children. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On Dental Caries and Caries-Related Factors in Children and Teenagers

    Författare :Anita Alm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adolescents; Approximal caries; Caries experience; Early childhood caries; Oral hygiene; Fluoride toothpaste; Plaque; Psychosocial factors; Snacking habits; Body mass index;

    Sammanfattning : On Dental Caries and Caries-Related Factors in Children and Teenagers Anita Alm, Department of Cariology, Institute of Odontology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Box 450, SE-405 30 G?teborg, Sweden Dental caries is still a common disease among children and adolescents. The aims of the present thesis were therefore: 1) to investigate the approximal caries prevalence in posterior teeth in 15-year-olds, 2) to study past caries experience in the primary dentition in relation to future caries development and need for treatment, 3) to investigate factors during early childhood which are associated with caries development later in life, and 4) to study the association between age-specific body mass index (isoBMI) and approximal caries status in 15-year-olds.
